About our home

Our 1930's cottage/bungalow (updated to 21st century in 2011) is just fifteen minutes walk from the heart of Woodbridge.
Our detached, private, comfortable, warm family home is located in a quiet part of the town, close to the landmark windmill and Farlingaye school - the latter does not represent a problem. Our rear garden provides for all day sunshine with patio areas at each end of the garden.
Our home is equipped with all mod cons but, as we are not great TV watchers out TV is small by modern standards. Books are plentiful in our study/computer room.

More about us

  1. We are Len and Wendy an active retired couple in our late sixties/early seventies. Len was involved with finance and ICT and Wendy with adult education but, we have both been retired for over ten years so work is a four letter word. We are actively involved in our local community through Woodbridge Cruising Club, RNLI, U3A, OXFAM and Book clubs. Len has taken part in a round the world yacht race amongst many other adventures. Wendy has been an active walker and continues to be an enthusiastic gardener. Our family and especially our grandchildren keep us busy. We have been involved with home exchange for more than ten years and must have done more than forty exchanges involving New Zealand, Australia, Canada, USA and Scotland. We can provide home exchange references if required.

Slightly further afield are Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and the Norfolk Broads but all are a comfortable day trip.
